Description

In Apache HTTP server versions 2.4.37 and prior, by sending request bodies in a slow loris way to plain resources, the h2 stream for that request unnecessarily occupied a server thread cleaning up that incoming data. This affects only HTTP/2 (mod_http2) connections.

Solution(s)

  • amazon-linux-ami-2-upgrade-mod_http2
  • amazon-linux-ami-2-upgrade-mod_http2-debuginfo
